Turkey Time

Just like on Thanksgiving... time for some more turkey!  I believe, I originally saw this idea over at The First Grade Parade a few years ago, and I have done it every year since.  My Firsties absolutely love it. After reading numerous books about the Mayflower each student wrote 10 items they would bring.  They put all the essentials in their suitcase, like Ipods and candy.  The free suitcase printables are at the end of this post.

We also completed our "How To Cook a Turkey" writing from our Fall Themed Writing Pack, which might I add, is always quite humorous. I love when they write that they have to cook it for 2 minutes at 10 degrees.  

To go along with our writing I took a picture of each student with a chef hat and cooking tray and super imposed turkey clip art.  I will put each picture next to their writing on our bulletin board.  They came out too cute!

Below is a little Pilgrim Fact and Myth activity that we completed today.  My firsties always L.O.V.E the fact that there was no bathroom on the Mayflower and that they had to use buckets... it's a huge crowd pleaser for first graders. =)
